dI have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
And gthrough the rivers, they shall not overflow thee:
Neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
The Holy One of Israel, jthy Saviour:
4 Since othou wast precious in my sight,
Thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee:
mTherefore will I give men for thee,
And people for thy ||life.
5 pFear not: for I am with thee:
I will bring thy seed qfrom the east,
And qgather thee from the west;
6 I will say to qthe north, Give up;
And to the south, Keep not back:
Bring rmy sons from far,
And rmy daughters from the ends of the earth;
7 Even every one sthat is called by my name:
8 vBring forth the blind people that have eyes,
And the deaf that have ears.
And let the people be assembled:
wWho among them can declare this,
And shew us former things?
Let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified:
Or let them hear, and say, It is truth.
10 xYe are my witnesses, saith the Lord,
And ymy servant whom I have chosen:
That ye may know and believe me,
And understand that I am he:
Neither shall there be after me.
11 aI, even I, am the Lord;
When there was no cstrange god among you:
And there is none that can deliver out of my hand:
14 Thus saith the Lord, hyour redeemer, the Holy One of Israel;
For your sake I have sent to Babylon,
And the kChaldeans, whose cry is in the ships.
The creator of Israel, your King.
16 Thus saith the Lord, lwhich maketh a way in the sea,
And a path in the mighty waters;
17 mWhich bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power;
They shall lie down together, they shall not rise:
They are extinct, nthey are quenched as tow.
18 oRemember ye not the former things,
Neither consider the things of old.
19 Behold, I will do pa new thing;
Now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?
qI will even make a way in the wilderness,
Because rI give waters in the wilderness,
And rivers in sthe desert,
rTo give drink to my people, my chosen.
21 uThis people have I formed for myself;
But xthou hast been weary of me, O Israel.
Neither hast thou zhonoured me with thy sacrifices.
I have not caused thee to serve with an offering,
24 Thou hast bought me no bsweet cane with money,
Neither hast thou †filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices:
But thou hast made me to serve with thy sins,
fAnd will not remember thy sins.
Declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.
And thy †teachers have transgressed against me.
